unless the renewal is one of those usurpers. I can't check the number but it is Re0000087096 per Video Cellar.

The copyright notice is very clearly there at the end at 1:22. It says copyright 1953 (in Roman Numerals) by Ivan Tors Productions, Inc.

I'd take a screen shot, but it's there at Netflix instant viewing for all to see.

I found some info at USCO. If a film published before 1978 was released without a notice or an incorrect notice then copyright is lost. Adding a notice at a later date does not secure the copyright.

Read my post on with the USCO link here:

Equally beating a dead horse funny. My last word on this debacle.
